Faisal Alshawa

Performance Nutritionist Faisal Alshawa supports vibrant health for busy people across the MENA region. Originally enrolled to study economics, Faisal soon changed career pathways and graduated with a Bachelors in Kinesiology from the University of Maryland and a Masters in Sports and Exercise from Loughborough University. Achieving his ultimate dream, working in football, Faisal moved to Qatar in 2014 to work in the Aspetar Sports Medicine Hospital and Aspire Academy. He was the dedicated sports nutritionist for the U-23, U-19, and U-17 Qatar National Football teams. Professional, world-class athletes apply discipline, passion, and commitment. The expertise Faisal mastered from working with them forms the basis of how he works with people in transforming their exhaustion to vitality. Faisal knows what it takes to make real, lasting change. In a field overloaded with health information, he’s passionate about evidence-based science. He doesn’t follow trends or fad diets, nor does he preach them. Because holistic health focuses on the mind, body, and spirit, it never can be a one-size-fits-all. Health is individual – starting with mindset first.
